Episode 0132—Cleitus-Scope
Show Notes

In May of 334 BCE, the first of three major battles were fought by the invading army of Alexander the Greece of Macedon against the Persians at the Granicus River.  The victory by Alexander was very early in the campaign that would see Alexander go on to successfully conquer Asia Minor, Egypt, and Persia.

Alexander could have died on the field that day were it not for the intervention of Cleitus the Black, one of his commanders, at a critical moment on the heat of the battle.

How would history have been different if the fatal blow had landed and Alexander had died essentially before his ten-year-long campaign conquest had barely begun?

Eric Bond joins for this episode.
